Orin Swift Palermo Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
A seamless assortment of classic Napa Cabernet aromas exude from the glass—cassis, black cherries, chaparral, and a touch of intriguing butterscotch. On the palate, the wine is tastefully expressive with ripe raspberry, crème caramel, bay leaf, and two types of currants—red and black. Carrying its own weight through the finish, the wine’s prominent tannins will soften over time.
This label features a photo of mummified 16th-century Cardinal in Palermo, Italy. The photo's sense of power, reverence and dignity is reflective of how their winemaker crafts Cabernet.
Ripe, with a bright edge to the mix of plum, loganberry and huckleberry flavors, backed by violet and anise notes and driving through the graphite-edged finish. Approachable already, but there's no rush. Drink now through 2031.
